The actress and her partner Alana Moyo tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in San Francisco recently, almost two years after they got engaged. 

Their wedding was a spur-of-the-moment decision. The Fox television series, Bones, writer explained how the spontaneous nuptials happened when she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

"We didn't really make any announcements - we went to San Francisco, we went to the courthouse and got married right in front of the Harvey Milk's bust," Lena said. 

And it turns out it was Alana who came up with the idea. 

"... we were driving and she was like 'we should get married at that courthouse' and I said 'cool, lets's do it'," the star explained.
